Nice sized rooms, clean, and nice heated pool. The on-site bar is good also. Location is about 15-20 minutes to Hershey Park. Some restaurants close by and a nice grocery store is close. Quality stay.

If we rent the 2 bedroom suite can we have 2 cars there?
As far as I knew there was plenty of free parking. They had a few lots.

How far to Carlisle fair grounds
It’s about a half hour from the hotel. Use I-83 North to I-81 South to Exit 52. Use US Route 11 South for about 6 miles. You’ll see signs for the fairgrounds when you get closer to the downtown area of Carlisle

"We were off teh main courtyard and our room was very quiet."
"Very convenient. Comfortable room. Nice staff."
"You might want to request a room near the indoor pool if you will be using it regularly."
"We were on the first floor which made it very easy to go back and forth to room, lobby and restaurant."
"Request room opposite of the highway."
